Fireplace Makeover Before & After
This before and after transformation is huge and personally I don’t think these pictures do it justice. From the glistening marble tile to the sparkling glass pieces in the fireplace, to the pillars on the mantel—the end result just feels so luxe.
To fix the crown molding situation, we created a mini soffit. It hides the electrical wires from our pot lights and also creates a nice transition from the crown molding to the soffit.
In order to secure this MDF box to the ceiling, Mike and Big Joe used brackets, which they hid from the inside. Another piece of MDF was nailed to the bottom to complete the look.
Using the same MDF, we had panels cut-to-size that we used to create the frame. The two side panels are 8″ wide while the top and bottom panels are smaller at 3″ wide.
To glue the panels, we used PL Premium. If you haven’t figured out by now, this is our go-to adhesive for pretty much every project we do. It’s so versatile and works well on a mirrored surface. Use painters tape to keep in place so it won’t shift while drying.

ABSOLUTELY FREAKING STUNNING~ I £OVE IT! Your idea of using the 3"pipes to make Pillars on the sides is GORGEOUS! If I had my own home, DIDN'T live in Hot, Humid Florida, And Therefore Had A Fireplace... I'd Copy YOUR Design!
I guess no one really installs Real Wood~Burning Fireplaces any longer, huh... cuz, gee I £OVE Them. But I suppose the mess~ AND That Possible Kitty~Flambe (sp?)~ makes it easy to make the decision to go with The Gas One. Still have to deal with dumb~I mean Curious~ Cats, but a Beautiful & Strong Screen will take care of that.
